Granite City, IL

A song that evokes the nostalgia of our collective past.
Dedicated to Robert Soles Sr.

Granite City, IL


I don’t see what all the fuss is about
There was always plenty of food in the pantry
So many ways for us to spend our time
As long as we spent it alone

My grandmother told me stories
Of apples for pennies fresh from the street corner
And how her husband had bees in the back yard
As the fruits of his labor filled his garden and lungs with blood

For our bloody gods
Keep the stock options over the broken homes
Settle fevers with a fresh cut of sod
Fill the hole in your heart with your children’s children
